Counsel In Custody And Visitation Matters For Cincinnati And Beyond

In divorce, nothing is typically more emotionally complex and contentious than the custody and visitation agreements. While you may have decided to go separate ways with your spouse/partner, your children will always be an integral part of your life. The custody agreement decided on during the divorce process is extremely important. Likewise, the visitation plan can greatly affect your relationship with your children.

Making sure your visitation rights are thoroughly protected is crucial. At our firm, we know that having a fair visitation agreement crafted can set the course for your future relationship with your children and the other spouse. That is why our Cincinnati visitation lawyers are here to help.

What To Consider When Creating A Visitation Plan

In most situations, your child won't care about the legal definition of the custody agreement, only whether or not they get to spend quality time with you and maintain a loving relationship with both parents. At King, Koligian & Associates, LLC, we are committed to helping our clients navigate this often emotionally difficult process while keeping your focus on what matters most to both you and your children.

Consider the following when crafting your visitation plan:

  • Look over and compare your regular calendars and your child's school calendar
  • Discuss how holidays, summer vacations and special dates will be split up
  • Make sure to include specifications for Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc.
  • Be flexible with "special dates"— try to remain willing to give-and-take
  • Create clear plans for pickup/drop-off responsibilities for school, events and appointments
  • Ensure both parents are given legal access to medical records and emergency medical decisions (in case of urgent accident)
  • Leave room for some flexibility in case unforeseen circumstances arise

While you and your spouse may have decided to separate ways, that doesn't mean your communication can completely stop when children are involved. You need to strive to maintain honest and clear communication — especially when working on and establishing a visitation plan. When both parents are committed to working together, it can help prevent future frustrations and problems and make the transition much easier for your children.
